Hello doctor,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I think there has to be some cause due to which you are having recurrent UTI (urinary tract infection). Do not worry, you will be alright. First I will write a prescription which you have to start tablet Levofloxacin 500 mg for five days, syrup Alkamax /Citraalka 10 ml TDS for two weeks, tablet Pyridium one tablet TDS for two weeks, and tablet Utwell/Cranpac (cranberry extract) twice a day for two weeks. Do a sitz bath twice a day for 15 minutes. After five days of Levofloxacin, you have to start tablet Niftas (Nitrofurantoin) 100 mg for four weeks. Next is you have to get some tests done, which are, urine culture, ultrasound abdomen with PVRU (postvoid residual urine), and RFT (renal function test).

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
